a treasure for those of us living on the continent wanting to learn the language of our kūpuna. Since we don't have access to classroom instruction here, these courses give us a rare opportunity. They are a real blessing.” -Niuolahiki Self-directed Student
ʻAha Pūnana Leo’s Niuolahiki program is named for a legendary coconut tree. In the story, Niu-ola-hiki, in the form of a coconut tree, transports his grandchild on a journey from Hawai‘i to a distant land far across the ocean. Just as this far-reaching coconut tree transports his grandchild to far-away lands, the Niuolahiki Distance Learning Program extends its culturally rooted language program throughout the world. Students of the program reside throughout Hawai‘i and the U.S. continent as well as South America, Europe and Asia.
Coursework for the program is based on the newly revised version of the textbook, Nā Kai ‘Ewalu, written by Dr. Kauanoe Kamanā and Dr. William H. “Pila” Wilson available exclusively for a limited time to our self-directed online learners.
Niu ‘Ō‘io is the jelly-like consistency of the flesh of very young coconuts. Lessons from the textbook Nā Kai ‘Ewalu are taught at this introductory level.
Niu Haohao refers to the soft milky consistency of maturing coconuts, sometimes referred to as “spoon-meat” coconut. Conversational skills will be taught at this intermediate level.
Niu ‘Ilikole refers to the flesh of a half-ripe coconut. Advanced lessons (currently in development) will be taught at this level.
Niuolahiki proudly carries on the work started by Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani College of Hawaiian Language back in 2002.
